Theeve trucks has just released a signature truck for JIMMY’Z team rider (and bonafide god amongst men) Giorgio Zattoni. The promotional video they made to reveal the truck is every bit as beautiful as the truck itself – give it a watch!
After the Old Skool Dayz event we sponsored back in September, we’re proud to also be supporting the Shriek! Shoreham! Halloween Skate Jam. There’ll be raffles, skating and a prize for best fancy dress, so if you’re in the south of England, get over to Shoreham’s bowl (just down the road from Brighton) on Saturday night!
Need directions? Head over to their website for all the info.
With all of the noise being made over the summer about Tas Pappas and Tony Hawk’s battle for the 900 during the 1990s, we thought we’d revisit our very own Giorgio Zattoni’s personal struggles with the trick with this old video, uploaded in 2006, which talks about what led to him being the second person to make the 9.
And yes, we’re aware that the subtitles are barely legible – this video unfortunately predates the notion of “HD”. If you want to just see the documented attempts at the 9, skip to 5:31.
Spoiler alert: the landing on this is BEAUTIFUL, and probably still the best (non-Mega ramp) 900 ever done.
JIMMY’Z team members Pontus Björn and Jocke Olsson joined Andree Böhlin, Tor Ståhl, Erik Berglöf for a ripping vert session in Stockholm.
(The skating is as rad as you’d expect, but this is worth watching for the psychedelic Olsson moment alone. You’ll know it when you see it.)
Thanks to our German team manager, the Z-Team keeps on growing! The latest recruit is Karlsruhe, Germany’s Johannes Haist. At 19 years of age, Johannes is already flying high, taking podium places and demolishing parks with a diverse range of tricks. We’re expecting big things from this guy over the coming years!
Once upon a time, Steve Caballero checked in at the Berrics, cruised around a little bit, made a few jaws drop and then got out.
We’re not sure what’s rarer at the Berrics: rails, shaped boards or Cab’s trick. We won’t say what it is because we don’t want to spoil the surprise.
